SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union
is the proud sponsor of the
ACSA Region XV Webpage
SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union is the nation's largest educational credit union, proudly serving Southern California's current and retired eligible school employees and their family members. In the midst of the Great Depression in 1934, 126 school employees pooled $1,200 to establish a credit union to provide safety and security for its Members, when they needed it the most.
From the school employees who made deposits and received loans in the 1930s, SchoolsFirst FCU has grown into a full service financial institution that helps nearly 500,000 Members organize and integrate every part of their financial lives.
Because Membership is strictly limited to school employees and their immediate family, we’ve developed a unique set of products and services, from a no-interest loan for teachers to purchase supplies for their classroom, to a higher-dividend savings account to set aside money for the summer months, to loan payment deferrals for school employees affected by furloughs or layoffs.
As a financial cooperative, our excess earnings are returned to our Members in the form of better rates and lower fees. Whenever possible, we don’t charge a fee for our services, like free coin-counting machines in branches, free checking, and no balance transfer fees or cash advance fees on our credit cards.
SchoolsFirst FCU is an Equal Housing Lender. Federally Insured by NCUA.
